Example text

Global learners solve complex problems rapidly once they have grasped the big picture, but they often have difficulty explaining how they did it. This type of learner seeks overall comprehension; analogies help this learner. Index of Learning Styles (ILS) In 1988, Richard Felder and Linda Silverman designed a learning style model with parallel learning styles that classified students as having learning preferences in sensing or intuitive, visual or verbal, active or reflective, sequential or global (discussed under holistic/serialist learning style.

Kinesthetic Touching, doing Use demonstrations of skills. Figure 2-16. Visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning styles (VAK). Learners generally use all three styles to receive information, but one of these three ways of receiving information is dominant. Once again, the dominant style of receiving information is the best way for a person to learn new information, but this style may not be the same for every task. The learner may use one style of learning or a combination of styles depending on the learning task.

The combination of an aviation background and future goals may enable that student to realize the need and value of learning the procedures. A second student’s goal may only be to comply with the instructor’s assignment, and may result in only minimum preparation. The responses differ because each student acts in accordance with what he or she sees in the situation. Most people have fairly definite ideas about what they want to do and achieve. Their goals sometimes are short term, involving a matter of days or weeks.
